GWINNETT COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Gwinnett County welcomed its newest group of firefighters. The fire department held a graduation and pinning ceremony for 33 recruits Thursday night.

Friends and family looked on as one by one the recruits stepped on stage when their named was called, shaking hands with Fire Chief Casey Snyder, who gave them their pins and took a picture with them.

Snyder said many of the rookies attended fire and EMT school and that many of them will go on to paramedic school.

"We have a big need for firefighters, particularly those that can fight fire and do the medical portion as well," said Snyder.

Snyder said this year's graduating class is very motivated and ready to serve the community.
